We are regulars at Raffertys and appreciate the good food and beer on tap. Always new menu items. Burgers are awesome and appetizers too. Good kids meals.

It is not easy to go out to eat with celiacs. Some times I just eat before I go out or order a drink and eat later on. However the waiter was extremely helpful and accommodating. I had a delicious mozz tomato balsamic chicken salad and had no cross contamination issues. He checked with the chef to ensure the dressing... More

Beautifully decorated restaurant with a terrific and expansive menu of very interesting offerings - varying from the typical to the unique - everything is delicious and unpretentious! I visited with 8 other people from work and everyone enjoyed everything they had.

We were visiting my cousin and her husband in NJ. She suggested this place. It was crowded on a Saturday night but we only waited about 5 minutes. The menu is very varied with lots of choices. Had a hard time making up my mind. I ended up having a special which was a turkey sandwich on a roll with... More

We recently held my Aunt's 80th birthday party here and everyone had a fantastic time due to the delicious food, varied menu, attentive service and relaxed, non-rushed pace of our celebration. Manager Dillon made sure our group had a private area in the restaurant and went out of his way to make us feel special. Andrew, our server, was patient... More

I usually dine here every two weeks. The menu has a wide selection of choices from full meals to burgers, sandwiches or salads. And now with the outdoor pizza oven, you can get a great wood fired pizza. The portions are large so you will not leave hungry. But try to save room for dessert!

The wife and I went last night on a lark after dropping our son off at college. We've passed this restaurant on Rt 206 for years, but rarely go in. The restaurant is clean, pleasantly decorated, and well-managed from what we can tell. They have lovely outdoor seating, a nice wine and beer list, and a great menu. I ordered... More

This restaurant has an extensive menu with good quality food. Very tasty beef burger with good sides. The kitchen was able to accommodate my need for limiting the salt in my food. My wife agreed about the burger. My daughter & granddaughter had very large salads which they commented on favorably. Very pleasant and helpful waitress.

We recently rediscovered Rafferty's and have had a good experience each visit. Entrees, burgers, specialty pizza - all delicious. Generous salad. And the best martini ever. Too bad did not get the bartenders name. Love eating in the bar and outside.

This place is good. It's not amazing but it is a solid good. I like the outdoor area and how they dressed it up to separate it from the parking lot. I don't like outdoor seating areas that over look parking lots so I appreciated the plants, umbrellas and overall feel of the outdoor dining area. I had the Italian... More
